10:07 pm
felt like a once—in—a—lifetime chance for these players, a date with destiny as a nation held its breath. with so much at stake, a cagey breath. with so much at stake, a ca g ey start breath. with so much at stake, a cagey start was no surprise. jordan pickford soon demanding more from his team—mates. a burst from raheem sterling causing panic in the defence. harry kane dragging his shot wide. in and have a concept the specialists here and once again showed why. it is headed firmly in! harry maguire got his head to it. what a game to score your first international corp. was football heading home? sterling's pace was a co nsta nt heading home? sterling's pace was a constant menace but not for a first timea constant menace but not for a first time a lack of composure at a crucial moment proved costly. having become the hero of his side's victory in the last round, pickford soon victory in the last round, pickford soon came victory in the last round, pickford soon came to the rescue again but england were about to take their world cup to a level few had thought possible when they arrived here in russia. this is the stuff of dreams from the three lions. sweden
10:08 pm
punished for leaving dele alli unmarked, injured with a two goal lead their dominance deserved. a place in the last four now theirs to lose. but lose that they would not, the immense pickford having the game of his life as sweden desperately searched for a response to no avail. whistle commentator: england win! england come to be sealing their biggest win for yea rs come to be sealing their biggest win for years and with it, their first semifinal for a for years and with it, their first semifinalfor a generation. gareth southgate becoming just the third manager of his country to achieve such a feat. i can't speak highly enough of the whole squad and the whole group of staff. it is so united. their level of commitment to each other, you don'tjust get through with i! each other, you don'tjust get through with 11 players, i have everybody at home enjoys tonight because not very often, as we know, it has happened. we are enjoying it, i never found here are enjoying it and the fans back home i am sure they are enjoying it. —— the fans here are enjoying it. we need to keep doing what we're doing and make

what stands between them and the finalfor what stands between them and the final for the first what stands between them and the finalfor the first time what stands between them and the final for the first time since 1966 and it is croatia, in the last few minutes, they have beaten the hosts, russia, in a dramatic match in saatchi in their semifinal. —— in sotchi. ivan rakitic with the penalty. 2—2 in extra time, a penalty. 2—2 in extra time, a penalty shoot out in this tournament. croatia managed to ove rco m e tournament. croatia managed to overcome hosts russia by 11—3 to prevail. they will meet england in the semi final in moscow on wednesday. a tough opponent and russia would have represented, they are ranked 20th in the world but in that are above them and they will be confident, especially of the way, as you saw, they played earlier on today. it has to be said that england have come through the easier side of the draw and they have taken advantage of that fact, they have taken advantage of the fact that giants like spain and germany have been knocked out early on in this competition in that half of the
10:13 pm
draw. if they make it to the final, certainly belgium or france would make very tough opponent indeed. but in that have achieved here today is monumental. when you consider their travails in recent major tournaments, getting past the quarterfinal stage, winning on penalties just five days ago. this young team has gone to places very few thought they were capable of and it may well continue on. thank you. now the rest of the news. the plan minister has been defending the brexit deal agreed by the cabinet at chequers yesterday. part of the plan is that unlimited immigration from the eu will end. but, today, theresa may refused to rule out making it easierfor eu citizens may refused to rule out making it easier for eu citizens to come here than people from other parts of the world. conservative brexiteers have said they are waiting for more details about the new proposals. 0ur political editor laura kuenssberg reports. brexit is a marathon. not a sprint. mps are rushing to downing
10:14 pm
street to get more theresa may's plan. the cabinet agreed it but who else knows what's going on? the only thing that is absolutely certain about is free coffee at number nine. inside number ten, the prime minister relieved to have her cabinet on board. when people voted to leave the european union, they wanted an end to free movement and free movement will end. they wanted us free movement will end. they wanted us to end the jurisdiction of the european court of justice us to end the jurisdiction of the european court ofjustice in the uk and that will end. for many brexiteer, a commitment to follow the eu's rules, to share so much still with them sounds like we're not really leaving in the way they believed. this is a deal that delivers on brexit, but it does so ina way delivers on brexit, but it does so in a way that ensures that we can build that bright future for britain. in the agreement, you make a commitment to ending unlimited eu immigration. but are you ruling out giving some form of preferential treatment to eu citizens after we leave ? treatment to eu citizens after we leave? free movement from the european union will end. but that
10:15 pm
wasn't my question. free movement from the european union will end. what i've said before and will continue to say is that we recognise that people will still want to carry on travelling to europe and europeans travelling to the uk. so it's possible they may still get some preferential treatment? we are going to decide. downing street's whole package would tie at more closely to the eu than brexiteers desired. we had a great start. we all have had a great spat. a threat from the leader of their faction is still a threat, even in comic language. an egg that is very softly boiled isn't boiled at all. a very soft brexit means we haven't left, we are simply a rule—taker. that is not something that this country voted for. i will certainly stick to the conservatives' manifesto commitments. and will not vote for something that doesn't deliver brexit. after months of strops, will the cabinet really pipe down? you believe yesterday drew a line and now anyone who speaks out against policy, they will have to walk away? yesterday, what i said was that collective responsibility has
10:16 pm
returned and what i felt, what i had from people sitting around that table was a real sense that we move forward together. so, do you hope that this will be the end of the tory psychodrama over europe? this will be, i think, a point... what we're all doing is putting the national interest first. the eu have been clear throughout this very long process already. they don't like the idea of britain picking and mixing. your proposal does just that. up to now, what we have seen from europe, the proposals that they have effectively put to us, have been ones that we could not accept. we're just about to sit down and start those negotiations with them. i think, from the reaction we have seen so far, there is an understanding and an acceptance that this is something that we should be sitting down and talking about. looking serious to the eu is what she wants. but looking serious at home is still a challenge. a memo circulating amongst eurosceptics said the cabinet's new plan is not credible, calling it a "black—hole brexit", even if senior ministers had enough sweeteners to be able to
10:17 pm
sign. labour has its own brexit headaches, but questions whether this deal can last. i've got a feeling the whole thing might start to unravel in a few days. it's also very unclear whether or not they could deliver that as an agreement with europe. number ten has had to take oh—so careful steps to move brexit forward. but the prime minister's foes still lurk only paces from herfront door. laura kuenssberg, bbc news, westminster. well, a number of business leaders have welcomed the cabinet agreement on brexit, saying it provides greater certainty about the future but there has been some concern, tampion. joe lynam has been assessing what the prime minister's latest plan could mean for businesses in the uk. from giant aircraft makers to global car—makers, big business has been
10:18 pm
very vocal over the past fortnight about what a poor brexit deal would mean forjobs about what a poor brexit deal would mean for jobs and about what a poor brexit deal would mean forjobs and investment in britain. the agreement thrashed out in chequers could give them peace of mind. what would this mean for companies and jobs? there would be no difference in safety and product standards between the uk and eu post brexit. there is talk labour mobility. it would allow fund to bring in key staff on the eu but end freedom of movement. that services such as finance, tourism and hospitality which accounts for four fifths of the economy are not included. banks in the city of london would be able to sell as easily in the eu as they currently do because they would lose their so—called passporting writes. nonetheless, the body which represents many banks and professional advisers was optimistic. what has been set out is a constructive way forward. it sets out a meaningful path on goods and sets out some encouraging noises on services. the important thing now is
10:19 pm
to see what the detail is that we see in the white paper next week but also what the reaction on the european side is. the institute of directors and the cbi, which represents large employers and manufacturers broadly welcomed last night's announcement from chequers but the former boss of the british chambers of commerce was lest please. and lest please. has arrived at an elaborate fraud for the electorate. what we are seeing here is the uk permanently tied to the european union. she has devised a deal that deals with goods, so that france and germany can continue to sell huge quantities of goods and will continue with our massive trade deficit. it has ignored the services, where we are strong. it's a one—way street. services, where we are strong. it's a one-way street. employers and their staff must wait to see how eu leaders react and whether the chequers compromise is dead on arrival. joe lynam, bbc news. a police officer has been taken to hospital after the novichok nerve
